Licensed Funeral Director

Losing a loved one is a unique and personal experience. Over the last 20 years I have gained a keen insight into how to serve your family that best meets your needs.

Our philosophy is to care for your loved one with compassion, care and dignity throughout the funeral and memorialization period across the entire religious and cultural community.

We pride ourselves in offering understanding, sensitivity and attention to detail when arranging your service. Our funeral directors have the expertise to navigate any and all circumstances to guide you through your decision making process. From the initial first call and throughout the many steps in between, we will communicate and explain the vast array of options to make your remembrance special. No matter what type of Funeral Service you choose for your loved one- we will, at all times keep your financial and economic concerns in mind with exemplary service, follow through and value.

Since 1985, I have been serving families and supporting those who give us the privilege to assist them. 

The care of your loved one begins with supervision of bringing your loved one into our care, embalming and preparation of your loved one, my personal attention to all arrangement details and attendance and supervision of all service that is performed. In this way, I can satisfy your requirements and requests that are most important to you. 

When called upon you can expect: 

- Compassion and Sensitivity 

- Understanding and Integrity 

- Meaningful and Individualized Service Planning for Your Loved One 

- Dignified Care 

In honoring your loved one, you should expect nothing less. You have my word. 

In addition to supporting families and caring for your loved ones, support of our profession and colleagues is important. I have been involved in the following organizations:
